Weekly Update from the President - September 24

Dear Kehila,

It gave me great pleasure this week to once again see our kids involved in many activities that we used to take for granted in years past. The Morris Lewinter Youth Program had a very busy week and strong attendance at the Sukkah Hop, Simchat Beit Hashoeva and Teen Movie Night in the Sukkah. We look forward to celebrating Simchat Torah next week with Kiddie Hakafot and dinner on Tuesday afternoon. We will once again dance to our Hakafot with our children, albeit in an outdoor environment over the Chag. This also gives us the chance to bring all of our minyanim together outdoors for Hakafot both in the evening and during the day. Of course, our motto is "safety first." The success of our children's programming is very much dependent on the full cooperation of parents and kids when it comes to the use of masks when appropriate and ensuring that children attend their designated groups and programs when our minyanim are in session.

We are very fortunate to have the accommodation of the Great Neck School District, in allowing our vehicles to be parked at the Clover Drive School over Shabbat and Chagim. Thank you for your cooperation in only parking in the rear parking lot of the school, so that we don't interfere with school functions when classes are in session. 

While the weather has been cooperative, our membership has enjoyed outdoor Kiddushes. Thank you to the Nafisi Family for sponsoring last week's Kiddush in honor of Ravid's Bar Mitzvah and the Mermelstein Family for sponsoring this week's Kiddush in memory of Martin Mermelstein, z'l. We look forward to the gala Simchat Torah Kiddush back once again this year and sponsored by the members of the Achdut Club!

Shabbat Shalom and Chag Sameach,


David Basaleli
Young Israel of Great Neck
